Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

I have an Indesit WIA121 washing machine. I have the flashing light problem but have just ignored it as it has not caused an problems. However, the machine now doesnt seem to finish its cycle. The clothes are clean at the end but still wet! When I put them on an additional spin, they come out fine. Its just a bit of a a pain.

Check your water exit point, , filter and exit pipe something could be slightly blocked. or your evacuation pump is on the way out. if not all the water is not evacuated in the set time frame due the blockage then the clothes may stay wet. when you do this again you just add more time so the clothes will spin ok. .

1. check your pipe and ensure it has not become trapped behind the machine, kinked or blocked.
when you do a spin, view the water coming out of the pipe to see that it has a good flow and not just a trickle.

2. check your botom filter point, most machine have a filter point where the pump is housed,
remove the bottom sill on the front of the machine and you will see a round opening (ensure machine is switched off)
this opening needs to be turend anti clockwise NOTE have some towels or a containter to catch the water that comes out there may be quite a bit. Once empty check that the pump blade can turn and that there are not socks, paper clips, stones or money blocking the housing, before replaceing the cover ensure the area is clean, remove any sand or grit around the seal of the opening as this will make the cover not fit water tight and you will keep having leaks at this point. Best is the replace the seal on older machines to ensure a good water tight seal.

3. if neither of these seems to work then get an engineer to look at this problem as some part such as the pump may be defective and need changing, or perhaps the drum is not running at the correct speed to spin out the water.

I hope this was helpful.

It is possible that the inlet valve is clogged and so the water flow is restricted. It will be good to remove the valve the filter, clean and reset.
Also make sure that the motor drive is clear, check if the capacitor is weak and has reduced the RPM , check the drive if there is friction to reduce the speed and so your final spin dry seems to be lacking. Also check the drain for any clogging that increases the drain timing.
finally a fault on the program controller cannot be ruled out.

Where is the pressure switch in this machine? my washer isn't taking in any water


The electric water valves might be stuck or not getting electricity. Are you sure the water is turned on?

Door locked red sign comes off


Has it ever run right? Are the water valves on? Is the selection by buttons or a touchpad? If buttons, make sure each is on a selection, not half way or in between. If touch pad, see if there is a reset.

Flashing lights


There is a Light Flashing on my Indesit Washing Machine


Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.


Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.

Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.

End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'

When I took out my white shirts (35% cotton & 65% polyester) I found they were dirtier than before and clothes were still wet.. my machine is Indesit WIA121. Any solutions?


The tablet washing powder is not the best, it takes higher temperatures to fully dissolve and they are more caustic than normal powder, You may also need to try cleaning the inside of your machine, you can either use about 1/8 cup dishwasher powder on a hot wash or you can buy specific de-scalers for washing machines.
